Want to enjoy a day on a nearby river but not quite sure where to go? Thanks to generous support from the Callie and John Rainey Foundation and other funders, Upstate Forever is mapping rivers throughout the Upstate to provide the information you need to plan a fun river adventure.
Check out our blueway maps to find river access locations, recommended skill levels, river rapids, recommended flow levels and other useful information. Many of our rivers offer family-friendly, beginner level recreational opportunities.
The Pacolet and Lawson's Fork Blueway (currently out of stock)
The Tyger River Blueway (currently out of stock)
For a waterproof copy of one of these maps, visit one of our Upstate Forever offices or email Katie Hottel at email@example.com.
We are currently working to map the Chauga River and update the Pacolet and Tyger maps. Please let us know if you have information about any of these rivers or would like to participate as a stakeholder in this effort.
Paddle SC, an interactive online map featuring blueway information throughout South Carolina, is now live at www.GoPaddleSC.com. In partnership with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (DNR), South Carolina National Heritage Corridor, and Palmetto Conservation Foundation, Upstate Forever has led the redesign of this website and the creation of the interactive online map. This website connects blueways across the state and simplifies planning a paddle trip from the comfort of your home.
